Cameron Green, who emerged as Australia’s most powerful cricketer, was ruled out of the squad due to injury. He has this injury two months before the all-important Border-Gavaskar series with India, which may be cause for concern for the Australian team. Green suffered a bone fracture in the finger of his right hand, which will require surgery to repair. Such injuries usually take a long time to fully heal, but the surgeons treating him are confident that he can be fit in time to play in the Test series against India. Let us tell you that the Border-Gavaskar series starts in India from the 9th of February.

Will Cameron Green play in the Border-Gavaskar series?

Cameron Green hasn’t had much time to get fit before joining the Australian squad for the Test series against India. He will have to prove his fitness in just one month, while he has not undergone surgery yet. Green met with a specialist doctor after the second Test against South Africa, who advised surgery, reports cricket.com.au. Australia beat South Africa by one innings and 182 runs in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to take an undisputed 2-0 series lead. In this match, Green scored an unbeaten half-century on the third day of play, after which he had to retire with a finger injury to goalkeeper Enrique Norquia.

Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc may have to stay out of the team for a longer period than Green. It seems difficult for him to be fit in time for the four Border-Gavaskar Test series against India. Starc also injured his finger while playing during the Boxing Day Test. Although Starc will not require surgery, the 32-year-old fast bowler may not be available for the first Test match to be held in Nagpur from 9 February.

On this situation, Starc said: “The India tour is very big and there is not much time. I bowl with the same hand that is injured, so I have to take special care of it and see that it is fully recovered.” The irony is that Green’s return will happen before mine.” The left-arm pacer bowled 18 overs in the second innings against South Africa despite picking up an injury in the second Test and took opener Sarel Irvy’s wicket. Stark said he used pen killers for this.
